With more than half of 2015 in the books, the remaining months of the year will offer us plenty of choices to satisfy movie buffs like our selves! Here is my top 10 list of movies I’m excited for the remaining of the year which I believe our worth our time and money to go to the theater.
10. SINISTER 2 (August 21st)
I absolutely loved Sinister and along with Insidious and The Conjuring it will always be among my favorite horror movies of all time it provided everything i look for in a horror movie and kept me captivated till the end, the storyline, the set up and how everything was brought together and unfolded made it a perfect horror for me. I am eager to see this new story and i am hoping that it will live up to the challenge.
9. Regression (September)
Set in 1980 in a small Minnesota town where a man is arrested for sexually abusing his daughter. He admits his guilt despite having no memory of it. With the help of a psychologist, he relives the memories and implicates a police officer as his partner in crime. The man’s estranged son and other townspeople are also suddenly able to relive suppressed memories of horrific abuse. At the same time, the local news reports blame a Satanic cult that has been performing rituals of orgies, assault, killing animals and even babies, for years. The officers are alarmed when similar reports come in from all around the country—they believe they’ve uncovered a national and possibly supernatural conspiracy. Is the abuse real, or something else? Featuring: Ethan Hawk and Emma Watson.
8. BRIDGE OF SPIES (OCTOBER 16th)
Steven Spielberg and Tom Hank are about to provide us with another masterpiece inspired by a true story. Tom Hank's portrays a lawyer recruited by the CIA during the Cold War to help negotiate the release of an American pilot who was captured after his plane was shot down over the Soviet Union. At the same time the Americans detain a Soviet spy mixing the plot even more. The negotiation and exchange of prisoners will take us to war torn Berlin.
7. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (SEPTEMBER 18TH)
I have not read the books, but i must admit i enjoyed the first movie, i like the cast assembled and the mystery surrounding the story. From what i have seen from the trailer so far we can expect that The Scorch Trials will break their limits with more action, more tension and more mystery and revelations. I expect it to be darker and more serious as the story looks to be challenging for our young characters.
6. BLACK MASS (SEPTEMBER 18TH)
The unholy alliance between the FBI and Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious gangsters in U.S. history. Johnny Depp is back in a role that will make him shine once again, portraying the sadistic, ruthless and evil gangster Whitey Bulger. With contacts in the FBI and a brother as a Senator we will follow his story of how he rose to become one of the most notorious gangsters in US history. A great cast is assembled including: Benedict Cumberbatch, Dakota Johnson, Joel Edgerton, Sienna Miller, Kevin Bacon and Corey Stoll.
5. THE MARTIAN (OCTOBER 2nd)
During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Matt Daemon will take on the lead role in a movie which looks to have a very familiar set up like Interstellar. A great cast is put together featuring: Kate Mara, Kristen Wigg, Jessica Chastain, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Jeff Daniels, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
4. NO ESCAPE (August 26th)
In their new overseas home in Asia, an American family soon finds themselves caught in the middle of a coup, and they frantically look for a safe escape in an environment where foreigners are being immediately executed. Owen Wilson and Lake Bell will portray dramatic roles which hopefully will be performed very well, they must protect their family at all cost and bring out a side of them that they never thought existed. Along with the help of another man played by Pierce Brosnan they will fight their way to the American Embassy.
3. SPECTRE (NOVEMBER 6TH)
James Bond is back in one of the most anticipated movies of the year and one of the most anticipated movies in the Jame's Bind franchise. The story is shrouded in mystery but what we do understand is that we will witness many revelations and secrets about Jame's Bond's past which will lead to a clash against a notorious villain and leader of a secret organization called Spectre Franz Oberhauser portrayed by the brilliant Christoph Waltz. Ralph Fiennes,Monica Bellucci, Léa Seydoux and Dave Bautista are some of the cast. Sam Mendes who did a fantastic job with Skyfall is returning to push the franchise to another level.
2. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (November 20TH)
The conclusion of the global phenomenon of the Hunger Games is coming to it's end with the best showdown saved for last. Our trio of characters along with a full force of 13 districts march to the capital to put an end to the dictatorship. The capital will be filled with deadly traps and hidden dangers turning the city into a massive battlefield or better yet turning it to a massive Hunger Games event. Whatever action we did not get to see in part 1 will be shown now, along with intense and emotional scenes along with sacrifices.
1. STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (DECEMBER 25TH)
I am sure that this comes to no surprise, my favorite movie franchise will be back to amaze fans around the world. Little do we know about the story however we do know that the movie continues 30 years after the events of The Return of the Jedi. I cannot put it to words how much appreciation and admiration i have for Star Wars and Christmas day cannot come soon enough and i will battle my way to the cinema in an opening that will cause chaos on a global level!
So this is my list and before i wrap up i should mentioned that i am very much looking forward to The Revenant and The Hateful Eight and the only reason that these 2 movies are not in my list is because of its limited release in US cinemas in December i will not get the chance to watch them till January of 2016.
